MI-5: Volume 10 (2011/BBC DVD Set)
B- Sound: B- Extras: C Episodes: B+
last season finally ended up with Harry in London with the Lucas North Incident, MI-5 existence is called into question
with the results of the event, but it is suddenly dropped when British and
Russian peace talks begin on a new alliance.
Not all agencies/countries are happy to see this new relationship,
including the CIA. As Harry and Ruth
wishes it to be their last service to queen and country and retiring together
after this mission, secrets from the past will appear, including Harry
involvement with deep cover spy, the Russian ambassador's wife.
seems to be the final season, protecting England's homeland security and it's
secrets seems more futile and MI-5
takes on even a grander scale to watch over international relationships with a
form rival country. Henry's deepest and
darkest past is about to return including a possible son with a Russian spy he
was once with, but on top of various intelligence agencies (including the all
powerful CIA) trying to indirectly influence the peace talks. They must deal with domestic terrorism from
former rogue agents, terrorist and zealot fanatics.
like spies and the British espionage then this is great series, the old guys
gets to call all the shots while the young, good looking agents dash around
(and sleep around) about to save the day. This series tells fictional tales of MI-5
agents, almost James Bond-like saving the world. Its various episodes mirror real life
incidents and act of terrorism (which MI-5 does what it can to prevent), such
as the London
bombing and 9-11 incident. In short,
service in the spy business sometimes requires the greatest sacrifices, to be
cut off or burned when discovered (on the side note, they wouldn't have half as
much troubles if they didn't keep on burning former agents for budget reasons). The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and Dolby Digital sound are as good as they have ever
been, though where is the Blu-ray version?
Harry’s Game featurette and
Top Ten MI-5 moments are the only extras.
